What Our Clients Are Saying
“Diane has served our family for many years, providing services for my two boys, one with Asperger’s and the other with ADHD. She knows what is possible and how to achieve it, and will not waste precious time and money. I recommend her services without reservation.”
“Just wanted to thank you for the attorney referral for my son. As a result, his legal situation ended a bit better than it could have been, and in time he will be able to rebuild his life and start on a new path. Once again, thank you so much! You were my guardian angel that day, and I don’t know what I would have done without you!”
Annie, I just wanted to formally thank you for being our advocate today during [our son's] IEP. I’m certain that without Wiscarson law, this would not have resolved so quickly. And now, we can celebrate that our beautiful son now has access to preschool just like his peers! Thank you, also to Diane for consulting with Annie and for the legacy you have built in Portland advocating for children with special needs. It’s incredible and such needed work. You all are wonderful people that we are so glad to have on our team.
“If you are looking for an experienced attorney who listens, provides encouragement, who advocates passionately, has established relationships with many school districts, possesses extensive knowledge of children’s learning and behavioral differences AND how they can be accommodated…Diane is the best there is. Her team of professionals will ensure you get quickly responded to. To better serve her clients and all families who experience disability, Diane stays current with legal news and trends, and has written a number of helpful articles for Spectrums.”
I wanted to provide you feedback on Wiscarson Law and specifically Annie Woitach.Before seeking help from your firm, my wife and I were getting little very traction in getting support for our son. After over a year with no progress, we reached out for help. Once we found your services, all has changed. We have made tremendous progress in getting help and support for our son. The education system started to offer support in our agonizing journey. Annie has been amazing. Her organization, facilitation, and communication skills are outstanding. With her help, my wife and I felt an immediate sense of relief. Since she has been advocating for us, many actions have been made on a promising path for my son’s education and socialization. I am in debt to your organization and Annie. Your services have been one of the best investments I have ever made! On behalf of our family, we are forever grateful for your support.
Diane Wiscarson helped me to successfully advocate for my son in more ways than one. I could not have asked for anyone better! She is efficient, kind, and effective. She truly cared about my child’s needs, was eager to help and thoughtful about how to best do so. I am extremely grateful for her help!
